The valley is quickly becoming one of the nation's leading areas for production of renewable energy. This change is affecting Antelope Acres in many ways. Residents are living with negative aspects such as decreased air quality, fugitive dust and residents' increased exposure to Valley Fever, property damage and dangerous brown-outs. Renewable Energy projects are popping up all over the valley, some as close as 30' froms from schools and homes.
